San Francisco is… a little crooked

Not only it is host to some of the steepest streets on this side of the Atlantic, but also to some of the crookedest. Lombard Street on Russian Hill between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, is so steep that it was deemed too dangerous for vehicles to just drive through. Thus its transformation into a switchback with eight sharp turns – so sharp and steep, I thought every household in San Francisco should, by default, include a shrine devoted to the genius who invented automatic transmission.

    1. Wow, just found your comment – it appeared all of a sudden on my ‘pending’ comments table although you wrote it back in September! Mysteries of technology! But, no mystery about this crooked little street or the lovable Herbie! Walking around SFO made me wanna see a few SFO-car-chase movies again.
